Panda Security released final version(v.1.0) of its new free antivirus called ‘Panda Cloud Antivirus’ for Windows after a long beta testing.
This is the first cloud based antivirus which uses a security platform called ‘Collective Intelligence’ and offers high-level protection in real time. It requires very less system resources as all the work is done in the cloud. So it is quite suitable for low specs systems and laptops.
The main advantage is that, because of the ‘cloud scanning’ from the PandaLab’s server, Panda cloud antivirus does not need a constant signature updates. However you need an active internet connection while performing a system scan.
This new release offers a few more features like support for Windows 7 and Vista 64bits, ability to restore any neutralized file, and improved detection and protection against rootkits.
